Environmental Studies Minor (27-31 Credits)

The Environmental Studies Program offers an interdisciplinary approach for understanding the relationship between humans and the natural environment. It provides academic breadth, specific areas of expertise, and technical skills. The program supports an extensive internship program and is committed to the professional development of its students who seek employment in environmentally related fields such as resource management, environmental assessment, land-use planning, public administration, and teaching. The program also seeks to serve students interested in pursuing advanced training in Environmental Studies.


Note: Students must work their Environmental Studies advisor to prepare a program of courses before they will officially declare their ES minor. Some courses are offered only once every other year and students must plan accordingly.
